Network optimization is technology used for improving network performance for a given environment. It is considered an important component of effective information systems management. Network optimization plays an important role as information technology is growing at exponential rates with business users producing large volumes of data and thus consuming larger network bandwidths. If proper network optimization is not in place, the continuous growth can add strain to the network architecture of the concerned environment or organization.
There are many benefits of network optimization. It can help in faster data transfers including bulk data transfer, disaster recovery capabilities, reducing bandwidth expenses and also improving response times for interactive applications like databases and software applications. It also improves the performance of applications with better bandwidth and helps in maximizing network speeds between remote locations.
Benefits of network optimization are not limited or visible to just information technology managers, but are also passed on the end users of the concerned organization or environment.
